  • 1 pound red chili peppers chopped (see comments above - try ghost peppers, Scotch Bonnets, habaneros, or even milder peppers - or a combination of them all!)
  • 1 8- ounce can sliced peaches in heavy syrup pears works well, too
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  • Set oven to broil.
  • Slice the peppers in half lengthwise and set them onto a baking sheet. Broil them about 15-20 minutes, or until the skins char and blister. Don’t get too close to the heat source. Remove, cool, and peel.
  • Add peaches to a food processor and process until fairly smooth.
  • Add chili peppers, molasses, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, salt, pepper, cumin, and ginger. Process until smooth.
  • At this point, you can strain through a food mill if you want a silkier style sauce. Or, simply pour directly into a bowl or jar and cover.
  • Refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to mingle.


Heat Factor: HOT.
